It's All in the Name
Since emerald is the 2013 color of the year, it's expected there will be a rise in green-themed names: Hunter, Jade, Fern, Olive, and Forest should be among them. We'll also enjoy a departure from city names, like Brooklyn and Paris, while we shift to state names. We can thank celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Rosie O'Donnell for setting the trend when they named their newest additions Tennessee and Dakota, respectively. But the naming trends won't stop there (lucky for us). The popularity of Downton Abbey
is sure to bring a rise to early-20th-century names.
